I don't recall having od'ed a raw disk partition and checked by hand,
but all Solaris 2.x work I've done has always said it's ufs type filesystems
(and I regularly move drives over to Solaris 1.1.2 machines from 2.5
machines and mount it..).  So, ought to be portable from any existing
2.x (x up to 2.5.1) machine to NetBSD/Sparc.  I don't think Sun changed
their filesystem when they went to Solaris 2.x.
